Jul 11, 2018   02:13 PM

C. R. Dean was born in Wingate, Texas on March 28, 1922 to parents Roland Ray and Nina Lorena Dean (Gannaway).  He passed away Wednesday, July 4, 2018 at The Ballinger Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center.  He was 96 years of age.  C.R. married Ora Lee Hancock, the love of his life, on October 20, 1948 in San Angelo, Texas.  They were married over 61 years when she preceded him in death March 29, 2010. 

C. R. is survived by:  his two sons Johnny Ross Dean and his wife Diane of Edmond OK, Tommy Lee Dean and his wife Faye of Winters, TX, 9 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, his sister Margaret Bodine of New Braunfels, TX and his brother Hollis Dean of Wingate, TX.  He was a Baptist and member of the Wingate Baptist Church.

C.R. Dean had a strong sense of duty and responsibility, and was a member of the “Greatest Generation”.  When the nation entered World War II, he, three brothers and a brother-in-law entered military service.  C.R. joined the Army Air Force and served in the southwest Pacific, flying 43 missions as an aerial gunner.  For his service he was awarded the Air Medal with two oak leaf clusters, the Good Conduct Medal, the American Defense Ribbon, the Asiatic-Pacific Ribbon with 2 battle stars and the Philippines Liberation Ribbon with one battle star.  He was discharged at the rank of staff sergeant in 1945 and subsequently served three years in the Air Force Reserves, discharged in 1948. After the war C. R. worked primarily in the oil fields of West Texas.  His strong work ethic and diligence allowed him to literally rise through the ranks from roughneck to part owner of a drilling company and the position of Senior Vice President of Drilling Operations for D-B Drilling Company.  Traveling with him to the field in summers and on weekends allowed his two young sons a great opportunity to learn many great lessons about life, dedication, work ethic and the business.  

C.R was a member of the Masonic Lodge 1042 in Wingate, Texas, the Lubbock Scottish Rite, and the Suez Temple A.A.O.N.M.S.  In 2018 he was honored by the Grand Lodge of Texas for sixty-five years as a Master Mason.

Charles Michael Edwards
Jul 10, 2018   11:22 AM

Charles Michael Edwards, "Mike", age 62, passed away on Monday, July 2, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas after years of living with heart disease. Mike was born in San Antonio on December 8, 1955 to doting parents Lenora Larue and Charles Glynn Edwards who had long awaited their bouncing boy.

Mike's parents Lenora, a Ballinger native, and Glynn were introduced by their sisters in San Angelo following WWII, married and spent the remainder of their lives in San Antonio where Glynn was a firefighter and his son's hero. Mike's parents died in his youth, and it seemed natural he would return to live in his mother's family home.

After graduating high school in Ballinger, he served his country honorably as a sergeant in the United States Air Force where he received training as a radiologic technologist. He went on to have a long and successful career of nearly 40 years in medical imaging.

Naturally laid back, Mike had the knack for putting people at ease. Patients in emergency situations responded to his confidence and skill while friends enjoyed his light-hearted banter while he ran the pool table! He couldn't carry a note but loved to sing along with whatever was on the radio and dance the last dance. Never without a dog by his side, he took every opportunity to be outside watering the grass or smelling the flowers. The porch was always his favorite room in the house. Always the dreamer of big dreams and the teller of great stories, we will miss all the richness he shared. Most of all...He loved God and us!

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Lenora Edwards; and his son, Justin Edwards. He is survived by his son, Jordan Edwards and his wife Jessie; granddaughter, Marlee Grace Edwards and his sister, Pamela Kelly and her husband Emil.

The family will receive friends during visitation from 6:00– 7:30 p.m., Monday July 9th at Lange Funeral Home in Ballinger, Tx. Graveside Services will be held Tuesday morning at 10:30 at Old Runnels Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The American Heart Association or San Antonio Pets Alive.
